the good thing in sport, sh Antworten

CINCINNATI -- Something about the Bengals doesnt add up.The defending AFC North champions were among the leagues best in the first half of last season, when they won their first eight games.In what amounts to a full season since, theyve gone 7-9-1 -- including a playoff loss to Pittsburgh -- and no longer have the look of a contender.They entered their bye this week at 3-4-1 following a 27-27 tie with Washington in London. A team that has reached the playoffs five consecutive seasons -- and lost in the first round each time -- is in danger of not even making it that far.Weve got the guys in the locker room to do it, we just havent done it, running back Jeremy Hill said. So we can talk about it all we want, but until we go out there and do it, it doesnt mean a thing.The Bengals have a losing record even though theyve been one of the most fortunate teams in the league with injuries. Theyre basically at full strength now that tight end Tyler Eifert has returned from ankle surgery.I feel like we should be leading the division right now, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. Its not a long season (left), but we have a lot of games to make up for the early bumps in the road.There might be some changes in the second half, particularly on the defense.The Bengals returned the nucleus of a unit that gave up the second-fewest points in the league last season. It ranks only 21st this season and is on pace to give up nearly 100 more points than last season.The stars of the defense are having subpar years. Linemen Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Domata Peko and Michael Johnson combined for 34+ sacks last season; theyre on pace for 19 combined this season.Atkins, a two-time All-Pro tackle, had 11 sacks last season; he has only 3+ this season. Dunlap is down from a career-high 13+ to five.Its not only on the line. The linebackers and defensive backs have struggled, too.Defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is using the bye week to evaluate each players performance and decide whether a younger player might deserve more time at their position.Some of the guys that have been here, that have been fixtures here, for some reason or another, whether its age or whatever it is, they are not playing at a high level, Guenther said. And Ive got to figure out where I can inject some other guys that can do it better or at least try to.The Bengals thought that the defense would improve when linebacker Vontaze Burfict returned from a three-game suspension for illegal hits. He is third on the team in tackles and has one sack, but hasnt made much of an overall difference.Cincinnati has given up 400 yards in three of the past four games. The only exception was a win over Cleveland in which the winless Browns rushed for 180 yards. Last season, the Bengals allowed 400 total yards only once.The offense is starting to look more formidable with Eifert back. He set a club record for a tight end with 13 touchdown catches last season.The offense was among the worst in the league at scoring inside the opponents 20-yard line while he was recovering from ankle surgery. In his first extended playing time, he caught nine passes for 102 yards and a touchdown against Washington.The running game also has improved lately after struggling through the first part of the season. The Bengals scored a season high in points during a 31-17 win over Cleveland, followed by the 27-point performance against Washington.We havent scored enough points we need for us to win games, and we all know that, Hill said. We know we have the talent in the locker room, especially with Tyler back. We saw what he can do. No reasons and excuses, we have to go out there and do it.With so many starters back from last seasons team that ran off eight straight wins, the Bengals figure theyve got a chance to have a strong second half. They play Baltimore twice, host the first-place Steelers and play at Cleveland, so the division title is still a possibility.We did it last year, Kirkpatrick said. I dont see any reason why we cant do it this year. Same guys.But so far, different results.---AP NFL website: and Deutschland Trikot 2018 Herren Günstig .R. Smith realized how easily basketball can be taken from him, and he wasnt going to take his place in the NBA for granted anymore. Fußball Wm 2018 Deutschland Trikot .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. . PETERSBURG, Fla. Joshua Kimmich Trikot Kaufen . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Trikot Selbst Gestalten Günstig .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. VAL DISERE, France -- Lara Gut is not spending any time thinking about Mikaela Shiffrin, even though the American slalom specialist is a serious threat to Guts overall World Cup title.Last weekend, Shiffrin won the 11th consecutive World Cup race that she has entered in that discipline, extending her overall lead over Gut to 105 points.As she seeks her first overall title, the 21-year-old Shiffrin is branching out into the speed disciplines of downhill and super-G.However, Shiffrin is not competing in those events this weekend in Val dIsere, giving Gut a great chance to overtake her.Its already enough hard work to try and make everything work for me, Gut said Thursday after finishing third in downhill training. Im not going to start to worry about the others, what their plans are, whether theyre skipping a race or when theyre coming back. My 24 hours are already full enough.The 25-year-old Gut is focusing only on herself.When youre in the start gate, its just you and the slope, the Swiss said. Im not racing against someone. Im racing for myself.The chances of Gut retaining her overall title look good, considering the current situation in womens skiing.Four-time overall World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn is recovering from a broken arm; 2013 World Cup winner Tina Maze has retired; and two-time World Cup winner Anna Veith -- known as Fenninger before getting married earlier this year -- is working her way back from a serious right-knee injury.But Gut does not like to think about her chances.Im not defending anything, because the overall (title) I won is at home and no one can take that away, Gut said. I understood last year that perfection has nothing to do with sport. I always thought that to win the overall you would need a perfect season. Last year I was crying after races -- it happened that I had no idea what was going on, what I should do, what I should change.So far this season, Gut has wonn the giant slalom in Soelden, Austria, in late October and super-G at Lake Louise, Canada, earlier this month.ddddddddddddI had a good start, better than last year, Gut said. Soelden wasnt perfect, but it was amazing because I just realized how much I just love to ski and how lucky I am.There are no half-measures with Gut.When she gets on the podium, she often finishes first and her ratio is 20 wins from 37 podium finishes.If I just go outside and ski the way I can and it works, then I know I can win, she said. Its not going to be second or third.Last year, Gut clinched a downhill-Alpine combined double in Val dIsere.This year, she has a chance for a hat trick. There is an Alpine combined race on Friday, a downhill on Saturday, and a super-G on Sunday.Everything is possible. Thats the good thing in sport, she said. But Im not going to start thinking about winning the race. Because thinking about winning doesnt bring you anything; thinking about skiing brings you a fast finish.Gut has a good career record at Val dIsere, with five podium finishes.She credits her special affinity with the French Alpine resort to her childhood days holidaying in France with her family.When I was a kid we used to come skiing to Val dIsere in the winter, and in the summer we often went to the Cote dAzur, she said. I just have good memories. Im probably just keeping that.Her brother will be attending this weekend, which is good news because Gut says she has a special task for him if she wins.As is the custom in Val dIsere, race winners are offered a cow. Gut did not take up the offer last year, much to the annoyance of her brother.Last year it was a big issue because I didnt bring it (the cow) home, she said. Hes coming tomorrow and, I think if I win, then thats his thing to think about.
